"A Trip Back In Time"
Reviewed 6 hours ago

With it's Baroque style and antique furnishings you can close your eyes, take a deep breath, and smell the change in the air as you step back into time. A small but majestic pool on the roof gives off a feel of the Riviera but with a fantastic view of the city, and at night you can almost hear the clip clop of horse hooves as they prance by pulling carriages. A vintage bar sits in the back to the left where a bartender makes you a Bloody Mary so flavorful you will never forget it and all you want to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the moment. The rooms are comfortable and tres' chic but with modern conveniences so you know time has not truly left you. You are but a short walk from anywhere including Downtown, Bourbon Street or the Mercedes-Benz Superdome if you are there for a concert. Breakfast in the Crystal Room leaves your taste buds dancing with the flavors of wonderful omelets made to order, fresh baked pastries and special brewed coffee. Outside the music of the city fills you with the romance of New Orleans and there is no place I would rather be.

First things first, we landed from our overnight flight and got to the hotel at about 5am. We went in expecting to dump our bags and head out for breakfast and mosey around New Orleans waiting for check in time to arrive. Without even asking, the kind gentleman behind the desk found us a room straight away which meant we could have a shower and nap before heading out. Without this we don't think we'd of had such an enjoyable first day. The hotel itself was beautiful, granted it needed a few licks of paint here and there but it added to the overall charm. Every single member of staff were delightful, full of smiles and warm hospitality.

The room was spacious, bed comfortable and shower room well equipped. Lovely little touch of the PB&J sandwiches, milk and hot chocolate at 10pm. The story really touched my heart!

The location of the hotel was perfect, close enough to the action of canal street / bourbon street etc with about a 5 minute walk.

We stayed for 3 nights during the 2018 Essence Festival. Loved that Nola Charm and Location. Four Blocks to Bourbon Street, Four Blocks to Superdome.

Overall our stay was comfortable and very convenient.

Affordable luxury
Reviewed 5 days ago

I was amazed at how inexpensive this hotel was for the service, location, and amenities. It's just a short 15 min. walk from the heart of the French Quarter and many other local sights. The lobby of the hotel is classically elegant, and they serve free PBJs and hot chocolate every night (not my thing, although many guests were clearly enjoying them!) The room was spacious and comfortable--fabulous bed with nice firm pillows. There was no hot water in the shower on my first morning, but I informed the staff at the front desk, and the problem was fixed by evening.The housekeeping staff were very attentive and service-oriented, leaving extra creamers for coffee when I asked for them, bringing me a sewing kit when a button popped off my blouse, and cleaning the room thoroughly and promptly (went down for breakfast and came back up to a freshly-serviced room!) Some colleagues and I used the rooftop pool patio for post-dinner drinks and socializing, and it was beautiful. The security personnel let us go up, even though the area had officially closed for the night, and we had the place to ourselves. Gorgeous night and views of the city. Great stay! I'll definitely be back.

Beautiful Historic Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

Loved this hotel! It was beautiful, very clean and the help was accommodating. The evening PB&J's/hot chocolate was delightful. We enjoyed hearing about how it may be haunted, but I didn't see any ghosts (unfortunately). I would stay here again and definitely recommend. It was absolutely beautiful.
